“Smart Casual”

By the Sea_001

I found this cozy little spot for dining and listening to music — a cafe of sorts with live music and it’s all set over the sea. If you decide to visit just take a hop over to Isolotto di Garda. It’s got a ton of comfy chairs and a sort of nautical style and it’s all enclosed with glass so that you can see the docks and gulls in the harbor not far off.

The dress code is “smart casual” so I had to dig up something appropriate. I decided to hunt something down instead.

More Women’s Stuff!

The Women’s Stuff Hunt never disappoints me, and this time I took a hop to Tori’s Stylez and hunted down that little red t-shirt to pick up the gift there. The creator generously had the gift for the hunt set to 0L so my floral top with it’s tie front and uniquely styled sleeves was totally free!

It comes in the following sizes:

  • Standard Mesh XXS – Large + a Curvy
  • TMP
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Revisiting Redeux.

To add a finishing touch to my outfit, I revisited the Redeux Event. You have until April 21st to pick up all of the many free gifts set out for you by the generous creators. I picked up this free necklace by On a Lark at their booth. It comes with a color change hud that changes the color of each little stone for lots of combinations, allowing me to get the necklace to match my shirt just perfectly!

Aloha!

I was on the Women’s Stuff Hunt trail and found this Hawaiian ensemble that I had to show you! It comes with the beautiful mesh dress (in all the standard mesh sizes and a quality alpha layer) plus the flower anklets, and a wicker bag full of flowers for you to hold (not shown).

Where to pick up your prize…

You can hunt for this dancing (or relaxing) dress and all its accessories at the Yokana Store where once you find the iconic red t-shirt this gift is yours for just 1 little Linden.

Happy Hunting!

Satin Stunner

Snapshot_007
Hello Fab Folks! Do you have a special night ahead that requires a stunning gown on a budget?  Even if you don’t have an event penciled in your datebook, you never know what might arise and should be prepared just in case you need to dress in a flash!

How Does FREE Sound?

I found this lovely Strapless Gown by London Core at The Free Dove.  Its sleek design may be simple, but the beautiful blue (you know I love blue!!) satin texturing and added silver embellishments really do complete this gown.  In the folder, you’ll find XS-XL mesh sizes along with an alpha layer, should you require it.  You’ll find this gown near the back of The Free Dove in the formal attire section, priced at 0L – as is everything in the shop!

Enjoy your day!

A Spring Day at the Shore

Spring Day at the Shore

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I are enjoying our weekend get away to Maison de l’amitie!  We’ve been spending our days lazing on the beach, watching sailboats zigzag across the harbor, while seagulls circle overhead.  I could definitely get used to this!

I Like Vintage…..a Lot!

My worn and comfy vintage jeans capris today are a free gift for Third Life group members from the Red Room.  Although joining the Third Life group will set you back 10L, there are multiple gifts around the grid from a variety of designers for lucky group members, so it’s a worthwhile investment.  With a soft, faded denim that hugs every curve, rolled cuffs and a belted waistline, these pants are perfect for a casual day at the beach.  In addition to the gray-blue denim version, the capris also come with a texture change HUD for the fabric and belt, offering a range of possible combinations.  The gentle hue and frayed areas of the jeans complemented my white lace-trimmed Ivy cami from Pretty Please.  With a budget-friendly price tag of only 65L, this cute, feminine top is sure to become a summer time favorite.  I couldn’t resist scooping up the cami in several other pastel shades as well.  Together, these two vintage finds created the perfect outfit for a lovely spring day on the beach with my pal.

Sizes and Compatibility:

Capris:  Freya, Hourglass, Physique, Venus, Maitreya, and Isis

Top:  Shirt and Undershirt layer for classic avatars, as well as appliers for Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, and Omega

There Goes the E.B.!

As the Easter Bunny completed his last minute deliveries, he paused and waved, twitching his cute little nose in our direction.  I couldn’t resist pointing him out to Ripley.  This adorable pose is perfect for alerting my pal to the E.B.’s presence, as well as for featuring the Bento hands that are part of my Maitreya Lara body.  For only 50L at the Reve Obscura Marketplace store, you’ll get the pose as well as an adorable mesh dog (in case you don’t have an ever-present canine companion like I do).  I love the way “Spring Day” reflects that special relationship between a girl and her BFF!

Ring Ring

Snapshot_001Hey there FabFree! It never fails…  I pour a nice hot bath with some pretty smelly salts, and the phone rings!  I sit on the edge and submerge my tired feet instead, waiting for the babbling ear assault to end before I can soak my worries of the day away.  Surely it’s going to be cold by the time this call ends… but I suppose I can always just add in more hot water :).

To Make A Long Story Short

While I’m sitting here, I should mention that the satin cherry blossom printed shorts I have on are a free group gift at Kendrasy Creations!  They are actually quite similar to a pair I own in real life that I just love to wear around the house in the summer, so I was happy to see these in Second Life too!  This group is free to join and there are a couple more gifts you can pick up as well including [THIS ONE that Pru blogged].

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza

Until next time my friends, happy shopping!

Just Packing The Essentials

FinaleCouture2washsaleWe all have baggage…  It’s how he carries it that matters

He wonders why my bags are always so heavy for even the shortest of trips…  He is constantly teasing me about how I must be packing rock collections, and everything but the kitchen sink, but [THIS IS WHY]!  I need extra outfits for impromptu dunkings and such.  I bet he won’t be complaining when he finds out I packed sammiches too ;).  I might share…

It’s a good thing that there are so many wonderful things for the season upon us at the Springtacious Cart Sale!  I  was lucky that I was able to load my bags up with plenty of 10L finds including this Anika Shorts and Tied Top Set in aqua by Finale Couture.

The Anika Set Includes:

  • Anika Shorts – XXS – L  mesh + Alpha Layer
  • Anika Top – XXS – L mesh, XXS – L fitmesh + Alpha Layer

Let the Rain Kiss You

spring showers

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I got caught out in a spring shower while exploring the One Caress sim, but fortunately, it was a warm, gentle sprinkle.  While the pupster splashed merrily in the watery world, I tilted my chin upward, and enjoyed the kiss of rain drops.

A Sweetheart of a Deal

My strapless fuschia mini dress is a free gift at Xtravagance.  I love the piping along the bodice, the way it hugs my curves, and the heart-dotted leather with a subtle sheen.  A variety of textures on the frock provide just the right amount of visual interest.  Since the package includes appliers for numerous mesh bodies, plus mesh for classic avatars, you’re sure to find just the right fit!  Best of all, the Carmele dress is completely free, with no group required.  Simply teleport to Xtravagance, click the sign, and pay a whopping zero lindens to add this saucy number to your inventory.

What’s Included:

  • Appliers for Freya, Isis, Venus Ebody, Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, Slink Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine
  • Mesh for classic avatars in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars

Seeking Sunshine After the Rain

Not long after I snapped this picture, my playful pup bounded toward me, plowed a wave of water up over my toes, shook himself thoroughly, and drenched me with a cascade of droplets.   Time to seek out a thirsty towel and some rays before I catch a cold.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Taking the Plunge

Taking the Plunge

Yeah, don’t dare me…

She wanted to go to the beach. Great, I thought, UNTIL… she wanted to sit on her beach chair, talk on the phone, then decide she was going to read her latest “romance” novel. I came out to have fun. I said, “Hey, let’s go for a swim”. She just shook her head at me as she turned another page. “If you don’t come swimming with me , I’m going to throw you in the water” I threatened. She peeked up over her book and said those three words she knows not to say to me… “I.DARE.YOU.” Sorry, babe… you’re getting wet!

John Dee Green…

We found a cute his and her matching look at the John Dee’s Emporium cart at The Wash Cart Sale. She found the  ABRAXAS Crop Top and ABRAXAS Shorts for just $10L each and I decided to match her look with the ABRAXAS Espadrilles and ABRAXAS Shorts also, just $10L each. The Wash Cart Sale continues through April 12th.

This Group Gift has her upside down…

Frimon Store,  has joined our Fabulous Designer Program and has put out a cute Couples gift pose for our FabFree members. The Couple 21 pose is their gift to you and to claim it you will need to have your Fabulously Free in SL inworld group tag activated (It’s FREE to join!).  To join the group, copy and past the following link into local chat in your SL viewer and click the link in local chat – secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about . Then head down to Frimon Store and pick up your gift.

I promise you won’t get wet… maybe…
